MCEER/NCEER Publications

Since 1987, MCEER, formerly the Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake Engineering Research (MCEER) and the National Center for Earthquake Engineering Research ( NCEER), has produced over 600 publications that describe the latest research and developments on a wide variety of topics related to earthquake engineering and extreme events.

The Center's research aims to increase the disaster resilience of buildings, bridges and other key infrastructure. For over 30 years, MCEER investigators have been developing design procedures and seismic evaluation and rehabilitation strategies for facilities and systems that society expects to be operational following an earthquake or other disaster. These investigations primarily focus on electric power systems, bridges and highways, sustainable and resilient buildings, and innovative protective technologies.

MCEER publications include technical reports, workshop and conference proceedings, and special publications such as reconnaissance reports, monographs, guidelines and standards, white papers and research summaries. These publications are intended to be of interest to a wide range of readers, including academic researchers, consultants and practitioners in government and the private sector.

MCEER no longer prints copies of publications.

The report documents the damage caused by the 1999 earthquake that affected the Marmara region in the Kocaeli Province of Turkey.
12/31/99
The workshop was convened to examine how to ensure continued functionality of health care facilities during and after earthquakes.
12/31/99
Earthquake vulnerability of nonstructural components is usually reduced by fastening or bracing individual objects.
12/31/99
In an effort to investigate the cumulative seismic damage in reinforced concrete bridge piers, the authors first examined the response of model bridge columns to constant amplitude and random cyclic displacement amplitudes.
12/31/99
This report documents the current state-of-practice in soil-stricture interaction analyses for seismic design of bridges.
12/31/99
A Workshop on Mitigation of Earthquake Disaster by Advanced Technologies (MEDAT) was held, under the sponsorship of MCEER and the National Science Foundation (NSF), in Los Angeles at the Radisson Hotel Midtown, across from University of Southern California (USC) campus, March 2-3, 2000.
12/31/99
Large cellular reinforced concrete caissons exist as foundations of major long span bridges across waterways in many parts of the country.
12/31/99
The overall objective of this task was to conduct shake table tests to evaluate the seismic performance of bridges that have been retrofitted with hinge restrainers between simply supported adjacent spans.
12/31/99
A methodology is developed to generate spatially varying ground motion time histories along the length of a long, multi-span bridge at its supports.
12/31/99
Post-earthquake function-ality of highway networks depends on such characteristics as network configuration, location of individual components within the overall system and specific links and subsystems, and the locations, redundancy, and traffic capacities of the links between key origins and destinations within the system.
